    Everybody stop and breath.
    The truth will soon come out. Many sites have picked up this rumour and ran with it as it would dispel the age old criticism of apps.
    It is basically just a small piece out of the whole issue of fixing BBRY that face people. Everyone is looking for a magic bullet that will fix BBRY. Folks there is none. We saw this with BBM when it made headlines a few days ago.
    The solution is everything falling in place, it used to be BBOS being outdated and hard to code for, then tiny screens, then lowspecced phones, then lack of Skype etc, then low app counts, then a failure to launch of BBM, marketing, mindshare etc.
    Facts is its all the above but the most important is BBRY returning to profitability. Without that doom is more certain than the legitimacy of pictures of the grimiest Z10 in the world.
    Have any of you seen the figures from the phone businesses of HTC and LG? And they have full access to the Play Store. So the Play Store is not the end-all. Everything has to fall in place.

    Wow cool, I think it's much harder to PS an image if the screen is filthy!

    Fired from my Z10
    It isnt that hard to do, just take a picture of another z10 screen with just the blue background, or take a picture of fingerprints on glass, make it transparent and then superimpose it over the pic of the z10. But I digress, it looks very real to me and I have 18 years of PS experience.

    In the status bar on the top, how come there's no cellular signal metre? Even if there's no SIM inserted it will show SOS or a red X.

    I'm sure you're just joking, but in case you're being serious.

    No one is doubting if the picture itself is real. Yes, the picture is real and un modified, no doubt about that. The only problem is it takes minutes to make Google Play show up on screen like that. Once the device is displaying the faked app or screenshot, you can take a picture of it. Heck, give me 5 minutes and I can show you a real picture of Google Play running on a Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita.

    That's why this whole thing is just silly. The pictures posted in the OP is no more proof of it existing than if the OP had just said it exists. They're so easy to fake that they're worthless.

    But wouldn't it show "Pictures" where it says play store on the app bar, if it was done this way.
    Just make a webworks app that shows the android screenshot
    It takes like 5 minutes

    For example I made an iPhone emulator, look:


    Found these online... Pics of Play Store on Z10-img_00001304.png

    I'm just wondering, could you photoshop a photo of this filty quality? ijs how can you prove or continue to say it's fake?
    That's a new way of disproving photoshopped pics by dirtying up the screens. LOL!!!!

    I can't tell if that is a border as it is too far away. However my word is my bond, so if there is no border then I will admit you have got me and I bow to you.

    Assuming this is true, I believe this is technically possible, if Google allows it.

    You know. I call bs. Google has to approve devices that have access to the play store. They will never allow this. For one BlackBerry is part of the patent trolls at rockstar suing goolge. Their just putting off the inevitable.

    lets say that this is true for arguments sake... im still skeptical that one could just download an app and away they go... i have had so many problems with android apps such as, not even opening in the first place, app closes as soon as splash screen loads... apps such as line give me an error when trying video calls .. so no video calls there.. snapchat, as well as many other apps dont give you notifications when the app is closed...

    i dont see how this fixes the problem.. its just a non sideloading way of getting android apps on the bb10.. they still wont work properly...
    The reason you had those problems was probably because most of those features relied on Google services that aren't currently available to apps on BB10 but could be, if these rumors turn out to be true. Also, they've updated the Android runtime to a newer version.
